UK Outlook for Monday 25 Sep 2017 to Wednesday 4 Oct 2017:

Next week there will be plenty of dry weather, but there will be light rain for a time. It will be rather warm during the day time, but it is likely to be chilly at night with some mist or fog patches possible, which may last well into the morning on some days.

Temperatures will be close to or slightly above normal. However, there will be some chilly nights with early morning mist and fog as well as an increased chance of frost, most likely in the north.
